Decades ago, researchers observed that fish-eating populations had very low rates of heart diseases. These low rates were discovered to be partially due to omega-3 intake. Since then, omega-3 fatty acids have been shown to have a plenitude of health benefits. The list goes on and on, but we only have room for so much! Here are a few of the endless reasons why omega-3 is key to optimal health.
While foods like walnuts, chia seeds, salmon, and cod fish are filled with omega-3 fatty acids, supplementation is a convenient option.

When we do not have enough DHA, a type of omega-3, in our system, vision problems can occur. Adequate omega-3 is connected to reduced risk of macular degeneration, which potentially leads to eye damage and blindness. DHA is also vital to skin cell membrane health, keeping skin smooth and wrinkle-free. EPA, another type of fatty acid, maintains skin hydration and oil production.
Considering the above benefits, it is no surprise that omega-3 fatty acids are pivotal for infant brain growth and development. DHA accounts for 40% of the polyunsaturated fatty acids in the brain and 60% of that in the retina of the eye. Consuming sufficient amounts of omega-3 while pregnant has been linked to multiple advantages for the child, including less behavioral issues, and decreased risks of developmental delay, ADHD, and cerebral palsy.
Omega-3 fatty acids come in the form of natural and processed fish oil, krill oil, flaxseed oil, and ALA oil, among others. These are only some of the forms that are made into omega-3 supplements.

Omega-3, or fish oil, is a type of polyunsaturated fatty acid that is essential to everyone’s health. There are three main types of omega-3 fatty acids: eicosapentaenoic acid (EPA), docosahexaenoic acid (DHA), and alpha-linolenic acid (ALA). EPA and DHA are found in fatty fish like salmon, sardines, mackerel, and tuna, while ALA is found in plant-based sources such as chia seeds and flaxseeds.
Some of the health benefits omega-3 offers:
1. Omega-3 can help reduce inflammation throughout the body, which can be especially beneficial for those with rheumatoid arthritis, asthma, and psoriasis.
2. Fish oil has been shown to reduce triglycerides, prevent blood clots, lower blood pressure, and decrease the risk of cardiovascular disease.
3. The risk of age-related macular degeneration can be minimized through increased DHA intake, as it is a major structural component of the retina.

the most common omega-3 fatty acid in most Western diets, found in vegetable oils and nuts, leafy vegetables, flaxseeds, flaxseed oil, and some animal meat, especially in grass-fed animals. The human body generally utilizes ALA for energy, and conversion into EPA and DHA is limited.
It is often recommended that adults consume at least two servings of fatty fish per week or take an omega-3 supplement to get their daily doses of EPA and DHA.
